In brief: Improve sleep hygien

Could be many things like insufficient sleep, delayed sleep phase syndrome, drug side effects, rotating work schedule, sleep interruption, depression, chronic pain etc.
Try improving the sleep hygiene, same sleep wake cycle, no daytime sleeping, regular exercise, limiting caffeine intake. If still has problem them get more help from our doc to look into other causes.

In brief: Circadian rhythm

Are you a shift worker? If you are normally up at night you will naturally want to sleep during the day.
If you aren't, then you may have a sleep phase disorder where your internal clock is out of synch with the day night pattern where you live.
